Tropical Birthday

Here is a fun tropical birthday card for you today!  I used only Jaded Blossom stamps and dies for this.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.  I cut a white mat with the Card Mat Dies and then stamped it with the solid leaf from the Hibiscus stamp set.  The leaves are inked with cracked pistachio, lucky clover, and evergreen bough Distress Inks.

The hibiscus is from the same set as the leaves.  I used squeezed lemonade, candied apple, and aged mahogany Distress Inks to achieve my coloring of the flower.  I fussy cut the image out once colored.  The stamen is covered with yellow and fruit punch Stickles and the top part of it is adhered with foam tape for a little added dimension.

The "happy birthday" sentiment is from So Many Birthdays 2.  Instead of putting a sentiment like "let's party," I decided to do something in the tropical vein.  I added "let's luau" from the Aloha stamp set.

I made this for the "lots of leaves" challenge at Seize the Birthday.
